I am an avid reader of Louis L'Amour and have 98 hard bound copies of his books. I started reading his works when I was in the Navy 40 years ago. Have probably wore out countless copies of paper back books until I started collecting the hard bounds, and have read and re-read them countless of times. I'm surely going to miss this great writer. Have enjoyed his books all these years,and still enjoy reading them.

My father recently passed away and I have inherited a complete set of the leatherette which also includes several other Louis L'Amour items. My mother loved reading these books, she had them all in paper back as well so we would not harm her hard back books. There are many other items in this collections, including a couple of additional books, a knife, and some pictures of Mr. L'Amour when he came to OKC many years ago. Louis L'Amour was a great author.

I love Louis Lamour Books. I have about 100 hardback copis and all the leather edition copies. I started reading his books when I was about 7 years old. I am now 22 and still am an avid reader of his books. The way he writes is just so amzing. My Grandpa used to tell me stories that his father told him about the "OLD WEST". As a Child i would always pretend I was the Characters from Mr. Lamours books. I have always loved his books and will continue to read them ETHAN RHINE

I have only been recently been introduced to Louis L'Amour by a friend who gave me 21 of his novels. I am on the fifth book now and I have to say that in my opinion, Louis is by far the best western writer I've come across. His writing is consistent and he demonstrates thorough research with his excellent knowledge of life in the old west and the vivid descriptions of people and places make his books extremely enjoyable. He describes scenes so well, I could easily make dioramas with them! I recently finished Comstock Lode...a superb read.

I have been reading dime store cowboy books for a long time with various writers; however, I was always partial to Louis L'Amour books. My father-in-law read themn for years and shared them with me from his collection. Upon his passing he left me the collection he had of about 60 books and I fully intend to complete the collection if possible to pas to one of children or grandchildren.

I have been a devout L'Amour fan for almost forty years.There is absolutely no one who can tell a story of the west like he can.I have other authors certainly,but after tiring of them,I always re-read Louis' books.Some years ago I was given a five-volume set of all the Sackett books,and I am now reading them for the fifth time!Wouldn't it be something if Angela or Beau found a treasure chest of Louis' books that he had been salting away for another time.He will certainly never be forgotten by anyone who is interested in literature.

I'm kind of a new Louis L'Amour reader. I've only discovered him about a year ago, and man, let me tell you, it's like "AHH all the wasted years!" I love his work, and his books. I was never much of a reader, and about a year ago, we had to pic a book to read for the class, I was just rummaging through the books trying to find one that looked good, and while I was bent down "Lonely On The Mountain" fell on my head, no joke. It looked and sounded good, so I read it, and fell in love with L'Amour's books. I've read every book that the Library has, and I own my favorites. My favorite ones are "Passin Through" "The Man From the Broken Hills" "The Daybreakers" "Ride the Dark Trail", and every Sackett book I've read. Tell Sackett is one of my icons now, and I really like Logan Sackett. I don't own more than 5 books, but one day I'd like to own the whole collection, leather bound.

I have been an avid reader of Louis L'Amour books for years. My father and I share our books back and forth constantly. I love his descriptive, clean writing and there is even a hint of romance. I haven't found a book yet of his that I did not care for. I wish I would have gotten the chance to meet him in person, but through his books, he will always be alive in our hearts. My father and I have coleected his books for years, but there are still some we need to get. This site is wonderful and I hope it continues for years.

I first discovered LL whenI was about 10 years old (that would be 1970). The first book I read w "Hondo" and I was hooked. Of course, I fell for all the Sackett boys. I almost wept when I first read through "The Sackett Companion" because he made reference to so many other tales that he wished to share with us. I still go back and re-read my LL books-I just love them all

It might be impossible to say too many good things about LL and his books, but I wish we could "nail it," a little better. Why does he speak to the American spirit so well? Maybe that's a topic for the discussion forum, which I have yet to explore. I love it that his women are usually complex and strong, and pretty bright, too.... and that he includes people of all races in the historical tales he sets forth. Who can ever get enough of him?

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading these books, re read them many times over. The first one I read was Hondo and from there on was hooked. I've got every book he wrote, and now all the short stories too. I will miss all the new ones I had hoped were coming to link up The Walking Drum to the modern days. My son also has a big collection.

My father and grandfather got me started reading your books since I was 11 or 12.I have a love for the outdoors and always felt like i was there when reading his books.My favorite writer no one else has been able to hold my attention as well as LL has.I've read them all and have read most 2 to 3 times.Even though I remember some of what's going to happen I'm still riveted to the pages it never gets boring!I was so sad of his passing who could replace him?No one that's who!It's like being there,feeling and smelling the air.I want to thank him and you for creating this site , so I could tell you how much joy he brought to my family.Thank you so much.Skaggs Family

I enjoyed the site very much. I've been a fan of Mr. L'Amour's since I was a child. My grandmother was a huge fan of his as well and, as a gift, she gave me the entire set of leather-bound Louis L'Amour books (Time-Life series, I think). When I was a teenager, my mom took one of my favorite Louis L'Amour novels, "Passin' Through", to one of his book signing events and Mr. L'Amour signed it for me. My mom told me how gracious he was and that he even spent a few minutes talking with her about the book. That book is a treasured possession of mine. He was an amazing writer and a terrific American, and his autobiography is something that everyone (particularly young men) should read. Thanks again for maintaining such a great website!

I was introduced to the Louis L'amour novels by my stepfather when I was visiting in Surprise, Az. This was in 1984. Since then I've collected most of his paperbacks and a few of his hardcovers. My favorite has to be "FLINT", which I have read countless times. His passing was a great loss to us all.There were books mentioned in his authors notes that I was looking forward to seeing on the bookshelves, that will remain a mistery.I still enjoy rereading whatever I can gey ahold of.

Several years ago I received an offer to join a bookclub to purchase a book each month as I recall. One book was given as a gift to join. I placed it on a shelf to read when I got older! I finally ran across it again and I am much older now, so I decided to read it. It swept me back to when I "played" the cowboy; we all did kids. I really enjoyed the book and now so wish I had ordered the series!

My Papa got me started on Louis L'amour books when I was 9 years old. He would read these stories at bed time to me and soon I started reading them to myself. I miss him very much and by reading Loius L'amour book today I still feel his love surronding me. My granny gave me all of his Louis l'amour book that he had after he passed away. Thanks for all the wonderful memories. I enjoy re-reading these stories.

Louis L'Amour has provided me with hours and hours of wonderful adventures during most of my adult life. His fiction is fast-paced, well-written and soundly authentic. I love his stories of the Old West and have read almost all of his books. In the past, I have read mainly the paperback editions and passed them on to others to read. In recent years, I have been working on building a library of hardcover editions. We lost one of our greatest story tellers when he left us and, for me, no one has replaced Louis L'amour in that genre of writing. This is the first time I have checked out your website but I intend to keep in touch. I am interested in hearing about new books that may be coming out.

Louis L'Amour books are a time away from time. It is a memorylane becasue I have seen some of the places that he wrote about. All the Sackett novels and his short stories have thrilled me since I discovered his books. There is no true western writer that has captured my attention and imagination like his books and stories have. Thank you for a wonderful continuing love of western that I have read once and will always reread and reread.

My grandpa gave me the 1st Fast Draw when I was 16 and I was hooked. While attending Marine Corps logistics training at Norfolk Va, I would buy a book every day to read in the barracks. Eventually I owned every paperback Bantam published. When I returned home from school, my grandpa was in the hospital with cancer and I told him of all the L'Amour books I had and that I would bring him some. He just laughed at me, and it was then that I realized he was dying and knew it. He died days later, exactly 5 minutes before my first son was born. I read and re-read every one of those books and in difficult times in my life I turned to them for entertainment and to take my mind off the current troubles in life. I would be very interested in seeing a continuance of the Sackett story up to modern times.

Keep them coming.

I have read and re-read many, though nowhere near all, of Mr.Louis L'Amour's novels about the American Frontier. But "Education of A Wandering Man" is the best to come off his typewriter. Its an autobiography, its a book. Its also a must-have-in-hand. If you find his novels and short stories interesting, you are obliged to read this book. That is one way to thank the author - reading it is the one homage you can pay him - if you learn even one lesson from the many in there. For me, his novels have been sheer poetry. But this book is indeed an inspiration - to try and get an education. Thank-you Mr.L'Amour.

Louis L'Amours books take me back, I visit the people and places, and for a while, I am there. Although our way of life wsa destined to change, I recieve te respect and understand that Mr. L'Amour held for the American Indian that has yet to arrive openly within the Nation.

MY DAD USED TO LOVE LOUIS L'AMOUR STORIES, I REMEMBER HIM ALWAYS HAVING ONE OR TWO OF HIS BOOKS ON HIS NIGHTSTAND. WELL THAT WAS WHEN I WAS A TEEN, AND "TOO COOL" TO READ WESTERNS. AFTER HE DIED, I FOUND SOME OF THESE NOVELS IN MY DAD'S THINGS, AND SO I THOUGHT I'D READ THEM; TO MAYBE FEEL CLOSER TO HIM (MY DAD), AS I MISSED HIM SO BADLY. AFTER READING A COUPLE, I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER WHICH ONES, I UNDERSTAND WHY MY DAD LOVED THESE BOOKS. THE OVERALL MESSAGE OF INNER STRENGTH, HONESTY, HUMOR, THE DESIRE TO BE THE BEST YET ALWAYS KNOW THERE IS ROOM FOR GROWTH,THAT THERE IS ALWAYS MORE TO LEARN, TO READ AND READ YET MORE; THESE THINGS ARE THE EXACT DEFINITION OF MY FATHER. HE AND LOUIS MUST BE KINDRED SPIRITS, AND HAD THEY EVER MET WOULD NO DOUBT HAVE BEEN FAST FRIENDS. I ALWAYS WONDERED WHAT THE DEAL WAS WITH MY DAD AND PLANTING TREES. EVERY TIME WE MOVED (5-6TIMES) MY DAD PLANTED A TREE. I NEVER GOT IT UNTIL I'D READ THE AUTHOR'S NOTE IN ONE OF LOUIS' BOOKS, AND HE SUGGESTED TO PLANT A TREE. AS AN ADULT, TO LEARN SOMETHING THAT AS A CHILD I NEVER UNDERSTOOD IS SUCH A PROFOUND FEELING, AS IF I'D STEPPED INTO MY DADS SKIN FOR A MINUTE, AS IF HE WERE WITH ME RIGHT THEM. THANKS YOU LOUIS...

My Dad, Daniel has been reading and re-reading Louis' books all my life. I am 47 now and have read a few, but lately, he has started reading them all again and as he finishes one brings it over for me to read. I love these stories and am getting my own daughter interested in them. Dad is now 73 I'm not sure how many times he's read these books, not even sure how many he has, but it is boxes full of the paperbacks. We're going to check off the ones he now has and get him the ones, which I'm sure probably is'nt many of the ones he doesn't have.....and will get them.

I have always been an avid reader, but it was only when I read my first Louis L'amour novel that I became a true Western junkie. Mr L'amour's attention to factual detail and his marvellous ability to construct a storyline, keep me engrossed for many hours at a time. I have a collection of his novels, which I read repeatedly. Although I live in Africa, I believe that his novels could easily translate into our environment and wish that he had been able to write something about our continent.

Pretoria, South Africa - Wednesday, February 01 at 21:58:02 (PST)
The books that Louis L'Amour wrote had to be not just a job to do, but was his passion. The style so evident on deep research intertwined with a fictional set of characters that no one could or has ever come close to achieve. To pick up a copy of any book is not to be taken lightly, but to be enjoyed with an understanding that you will be educated at the same time. I highly recommend any of the series to be read as if it is a history book. Not to be taken lightly.

I'm writing for my husband, Tony. He started reading Louis L'Amour books in Oct.. I had a copy of "The Trail Of Seven Pines", which had been my father's. He was looking for something to read and I mentioned this book. I had not read it and I had no idea about it, except that it was a western. He started it and loved it. He is now reading his 55th book. Yes, 55th since Oct.. Yes, we are retired. That helps. Well, I can see that I'm going to have to get started reading them as well. We just read Mr. L'Amour's biography on this site. What an interesting life. Oh, if only we had known him! Thank you, Mr. L'Amour for your books.

I still miss him and miss looking forward to a new book now and then. My first attraction to Louis L'Amour's books began because of his perfect depiction of my grandfathers' and father's speech. My grandfathers moved from Kentucky and Southern Indiana to farm in Western Kansas, south a few miles from Dodge City. I loved the tenor or his early books, especially the Sacketts, of course. His later books nearly perfectly recreated the hard, dangerous lives of my father and his western Kansas contemporaries, These three men lived lives that themselves would make a novel: My grandfather barely missrd a coal mine disaster in Northern New Mexico. He knew purely from instinct that the mine was going to go, and walked out. The other miners didn't believe him. They homesteaded near Logan, New Mexico, in an effort to help my Grandmother beat the tuberculosis that killed her anyway, at only 34. She, Sarah, lived in a sod house that her husband and my father built for her, and Daddy and his two brothers and the two brothers and a sister who survived the grueling trip west from Kentucky, lived in a dugout. They were never allowed in her house until the day she died. Not long after his mother's death, Lester, my father's younges brother was riding home from another homestead when a snake spooked his horse and dragged him home across the desert. He was 12, and he died in the lap of his 14-year-old sister. Granddaddy and Daddy were in Raton trying to sell some horses they raised and didn't get home until late that night. In his grief and rage, my grandfather tried to beat the horse to death with a fence post, but by my father managed to stop him. My dad, then only 16, took it upon himself to see to the raising of his sister and her twin brother. His father worked when he could, but eventually grief, and alcoholism killed him. My family's story, on both sides, is about people who had only grit and determination as tools. Yet, they successfuly did battle with generations of sorrow, pain, little education, and poverty. In time, much time, they defeated all those and made great efforts to see that their children and grandchildren had better lives. Because of those undefeatable people before me, my son graduated from Oxford University with a doctorate and now teaches at the college level. His children, and my children ahve all made great contributions to people in need. I've enjoyed sharing a piece of our story. Many times I have wished I could share a bit of my family with Louis L'Amour, and I thank you for this next-best opportunity.

I have been reading L'Amour's books since I was 16yrs old. I have almost the complete set of hardbound brown leather, gold leaf collection set. I cannot get enough of his writing. I also have short stories. Love to read, will not put down until I have read the entire book. I use to order from Bantam, but cannot seem to order anymore, if anyone knows where I can finish the brown leather hardbound collection, please let me know. Thanks Louis!

I have been reading Louis L'Amour books since the 1950's. I believe I have every book he ever published. I have read and re-read every book up to 7 or 8 times over the years and am currently reading them again in alphabetical order. I have been to or know about many of the sites mentioned in the stories. I miss very much the stories and sequels he intended to write.

I began reading Louis L'Amour books at the age of 15 one summer spent in the Mojave Desert. My first two books were Hondo and Callahan. That was almost 34 years ago. I am currently rereading the entire Sackett series to be followed by the Chantry and Talon books. These stories have been a blessing to me especially since my Mother's Stock came from England through Massachussetts in the 1600s, followed by my Welch anscestors who settled in Wyoming and Utah ion the 1800s where the two branches met.

I have truely been checking the mail every day to wait for my next book and I can say it's worth the money on the books. I love the stories the plots the settings just everything about them.

My mother and I share a love for reading. She introduced me to Louis L'Amour when I was elementary school 40+ years ago. For Christmas this year (2005) my wife and kids bought on e-bay a 100 plus collection of leatherette bound books. I am now reading them in the order that they were written. Last summer I read the Sackett's in chronological order.

About 23 years ago my wife asked me if I wanted anything from the library. I asked her to get me a western or two. My wife then asked the librarian if she could recommend any westerns. The librarian handed her four LL paper back books and said, “A lot of guys read this author, I'm sure he will enjoy them.” Less then a week later I returned the four books and checked out the remaining six that the library had in stock. I'm 57 now and have bought and read ever book LL that I can get my hands on, over 130. My favors are of course the Sackett titles followed by “The Walking Drum”, “Last of the Breed”, and “Hondo”. I have lost track of the number of times I have read each of his books, but at least now I write the month and year on the first page in the book. Many nights (mornings) I have found myself not being able to put a LL book down at 2 AM when I have to get up in 4 hours. Louis L'Amour westerns by far are the best books out there and as others have said, we miss you. There has been at least one LL book by my night stand for the last 23 years. Thank you. --- >>>Please do not post my email address, Thanks again<<<

Hello Readers, as a big fan of LL books i asked a cptn of the airforce, stationed here in germany, if he is able to get the rest of LL books on my list. It's a short list, only 30-40 books or so. And he said, that he will be able to get them all for me. If that happens, i will be not available for my wife and my children until i read them all. So thanks for the pleasure of reading the works of Louis L'amour and many greetings from Germany.

We have read almost all of Louis L'amours books; he was the best western story writer; when we start reading a book, can't hardly put it down. Unlike some other writers, he kept his stories clean, not much swearing etc. We hope there will be more stories or republished ones. Thank you Beau for continuing your father's work.

I have the collection of Louis' books that were bound. This was started by my Mother, who died at 91 in 1993. I subsequently finished receiving what she had started. However, I seem to have only two of the Hopalong Cassidy books and I believe he wrote 3, not that he would admit to it! Would it be possible to still get the third one to complete the set. I think I have about 100 of the books. If you could get in touch with me, I'd appreciate it. I've read all of them once, most of them twice and am going through again. I never get tired of them. Dick

I recently dug out my LL books and started re-reading them....I'd forgotten how great a writer he was. Right now, I'm reading Robert Weinberg's LOUIS L'AMOUR COMPANION. As soon as I've re-read the books I now have, I'll start purchasing and reading the books that I don't already have. Thanks, Louis' kids, for continuing your Pappy's works. DALE H. (SODBUSTER) TRIPP

I started reading western novels when i was 14 or 15 (now 44) I have read everything that Louis L'Amour has written as far as I know. I would not hesitate to say that part of the reason that I look at certain things the way that I do,is because of the influence his books have had upon me. I think that Bendigo Shafter has the most wisdom of any book I have read, except the Bible. The Walking Drum or Riley's Luck would probally be my favorites, I could not begin to tell you how many times I have read them.

The first time i read an ll book. I was 12 on a vacation with my parents. We drove all the way across the country and the year was 1988. We were first headed west,very fitting to read riding in a van. My mom bought Flint for me at a rest stop, and i've been hooked ever since. We even stayed with some friends on a 7,600 acre ranch just outside of Durango. All us kids dressed up as cowboys and we went into town and had a lot of funny looks from people but we didn't care.

I met Louis, as a young boy. I never read anything and was determined to keep it that way my entire life. then our TV broke aand my mother said, " I am not getting it fixed, so you might as well pick up a book" I read Sacket where Mr. L'amour introduced me to Tell, I was so drawn inn to those pages I didn't sleep I had finished the book. After that I had one of his books in my hand ever since. I have tried to be as good a man as any he would write about. I can say I have seen the world and it was through eyes he gave me. Now I have read all of his books so many times I have most memorized. I was very sad the day he passed, as many fans I wanted him to live and write forever. But, he will and has lived through his books. As my daughters grow older I will give them a copy and hope they find the frieends I did with in the pages of all his books.

She has been engrossed for over two months. She wants to visit the Hidden Valley where some brothers hid stolen horses. The brothers were killed near San Bernardino. I would love to help her visit the Hidden Valley. Can anyone tell me if it is in Joshua Tree Nat. Park? If not there, where?

Hi,Iam living in South Africa and am a very keen collecter of Louis' books, I am currently only five short to com-plete the full collection. I read his books over and over again, some I must have read twenty times or more and then I will most probebly read them another twenty times. I really enjoy the Sacket range and I have the whole collection. I started reading his books when I was about twenty five and I'm now almost forty five. I would have loved to visit his ranch when he was still around and to have been able to take a walk with him and have a long chat to him. Regards from a sunny South Africa. Colin

I absolutely love the sackett series and the alltime favorite book that really struck me was FLINT.

I actually own a large part of the collection, my father left them to me when he died two years ago. At first I thought, being the young 21 year old I now am, that these were probably some "old timer" babble books on the days of cowboys and indians,...WRONG!!! I picked up "The warrior's path and began to engulf my mind with incredible knowledge of how to grow as an adult. Life lessons I have encountered have been far eisier to cope with, small things and large things alike. Thank you Louis L'amour for being an inspiration..... your fan for life....young and hopefull!

Louis Lamour was my fathers author of choice through the many years he was a truck driver,once in a while during his weekend home time he would hand me one of his Louis Lamour novels to read, . I was a teen then, I am 49 years of age now and I still enjoy opening one of Mr. Lamour s novel and imagining myself as being part of each unfolding chain of events(especialy the Sacketts). In my opinion Louis Lamour is the best western novelist ever What there are others????

I was never a western fan until one summer I was layed up with a cast on my leg and on crutches in Sierra Vista, AZ. Being bored one day I picked up one of Louis books my wife had and started to read. I could not put it down until I had finished. Then I picked up another one and the same thing. No other book has ever had that effect on me. He made me feel as if I were part of the story. I felt every emotion of the main character of the book. That was 20 years ago and the same is true today. Louis L'Amour to this day is the only western writer I can read. None of the others hold my interest. He was and still is in a League of His Own. No other author can or will ever compare to louis L'Amour in my mind.

It's a daily ritual at papaw Collazo's household that he spends quality time with himself and a paperback book of Louis L'Amour's in the serentiy of his greenhouse. We all know, his Louis L'Amour time is his time and his alone and he is not to be interrupted :-)

I started reading Louis in Jan 1969 on my way to Viet Nam and have been an avid fan ever since. When I was daignosed with cancer earlier this year I reread all the Sacket series again and felt wonderful again. The L'Amour stories have been much more than just pages they are inspiring and help to show how life is to be lived. God Bless Louis L'Amour

I own and have read 99% of Louis L'Amour's books. I have enjoyed every one of them. They are written as if I were there and experiencing those moments. I really miss him. Thank You to his family for doing what they can to continue his great works.

Six years ago, I found a couple of boxes full of Mr. L'Amour's Western paperbacks (along with a bunch of Westerns by other authors) at a thrift store for twelve dollars, previously part of the collection of a fellow named Sam Anderson. There were around seventy volumes of Mr. L'Amour's works (including a few duplicates), and I stuffed them away on a shelf in my home library (I'm a book hog, with around 6,000 books or so), figuring that I'd either get around to reading them eventually or I'd find a good home for them with someone who would read them. About a year and a half ago, I grabbed Callaghen and started reading. Then I read Hanging Woman Creek, and then The Rider of Lost Creek. I started fitting more and more of his books into my reading schedule, and finally decided to run through them all in alphabetical order (except for the Sacketts, which I'm saving for last). Just finished reading Riding For The Brand and The Shadow Riders today, and there are about a dozen more before I hit the first Sackett title (around Christmas, I expect). I figure to be buying the other thirty or forty books new, because I believe in supporting writers (and their estates) whom I respect (although I also believe that used books deserve a good home, too). As a high school English teacher (11th grade), I have a rack of "loaner" paperbacks in my classroom, which I try to keep stocked with at least a couple of L'Amour titles at all times. This is another good purpose for used books to recirculate, and so far the most popular title seems to be Rivers West. I wish that I'd had the good fortune to begin reading Mr. L'Amour when I was a younger man (I'm fifty now), so that I could have done what I could to meet him at one of his public appearances. For now, though, he talks to me through the pages of his books, and it's a very pleasant conversation.

So far as I know, I have read everything Louis Lamour ever wrote. In fact I have read many of his books and short stories several times. His body of work is so large and so excellent that I stand in amazement when I consider it, and I feel a overwhelming gratitude to him for the legacy he left us. His vast reservoir of knowledge gained through personal observation, experience and research is astounding. He captured the American West as no other writer has ever done. His characters come to life and become real as do the places and situations in which the reader finds them. His books and stories draw me in so intensely that, after reading one, I feel as if I had been there too. It is a wonderful feeling. Thank you, Louis.

I spent many an hour while moving about the oceans during my Navy career passing my spare time reading Louis L'Amour's westerns. That was over 24 years ago and I sort of lost the time to read over the following years. Two months ago I found one of his books in the book store that I did not recall reading. Guess what? I'm hooked all over again on his stories and cannot put his books down, after getting a hold of one, until I have finished it.

I just finished Last of the Breed and was simply astonished afterwards. No other LL novel hit me quite the way this one did, and I wish I could congratulate LL himself for putting together something so incredible. A sequel would have been terrific, but it seems perfect to leave so many questions unanswered about Joe Mack.

I love reading Louis L'Amour books. I can remember my step father reading during the winter months in the Foothills outside of Denver, where it snowed so much you couldn't work outside. Since I live in Silver City now, I am trying to collect the entire set of paperbacks. I have been known to stay up all night reading just find out if "good guy gets out of the fix he is in. Enjoy them very much Thanks Mike

I have read and loved everyone of Louis's books. My Grandaughter started reading them about a year ago when she was eleven. He mother and father like them as well. They don't have a lot of books so they borrow mine.They have six children ranging from 2 years to l5 years. The three oldest & their mother don't go very far without a Louis L'Amour book in their hand. My son in law is not a fast reader so he always has his wife read to him until her throat gets sore and she wants to stop, but he dosen,t want her to because he gets so caught up in Louis's stories.My husband was a trucker to the U.S. for twenty five years and I would go along once in awhile but I always had a traveling companion besides my husband, and that was Louis L'Amour. There was always a good handful of those books that went along. It is so wonderfull to see you keeping your fathers work alive. Keep up the good work and God Bless you and yours.

I just finished "The Sixth Shotgun," a story that had appeared in magazines back in the day and just came out in paperback with an early version of "The Rider or the Ruby Hills." The editor, a long-winded fool by the name of Jon Tuska, seems to have a fairly low opinion of Louis' plots and story lines. His editorial foreward is a long, whining rant against Mr. L'Amour's extended versions of short stories. However, Mr. Tuska seems to have no problem with attaching himself to Louis' books in order to make a name (or a DOLLAR) for himself. Tuska missed the point ENTIRELY: nobody, but NOBODY, can write a story that pulls a reader in the way Louis L'Amour could! Millions of us will be reading Louis' books forever, but how many will ever care who Jon Tuska was? That's probably Mr. Tuska's problem in the first place!!! Yol Bosun! May there be a road!

Thought you would like to here from a real life cowboy. I thoroughly enjoy all of Mr. L'Amour's books that I have read to date(many, I esp. like the Sackett titles). When you do what I do for a living, horseback as many hours as most people spend at a city job, you get to feel where Mr. L'Amour comes from in his writings. I have spent many hours on end in the saddle and the outfit that I work for has enough land for you to feel like you are living 125 years in the past(77,000 acres). I am so interested in the Old West and Mr. L'Amour's writings hit my heart with such a passion. The man was and still is a legend in the Old West and every true cowboy feels where he comes from. He will always be one of my most favorite writers of all time and he will be truly missed. The main things about his material that I love are how clean his books are and how the morals of the stories' create morals for all of us to live by. Thanks a ton and God bless!

My son back in the 1980's got me hooked on the books by asking me to read down the long hills. he told me once if you get started you have to finish it before putting one down. to my surprise he is right.I read it in 1 night. many times while he was in high school(1980"s) he would read a paper back a night sometimes 2. his dream was to have a personal copy of one of Louis' signed books. Mr lamour can pull you into his books and before you know you are the person he is writing about. we lost a great writer when he died. thanks for allowing me to write my few words.

As a young girl and a voracious reader, I never thought about reading any sort of western novel. However, at 10 years old I wondered into my big brother's bedroom one day to discover a book on his nightstand. I opened the book and began to read. I am now 52 years old and have read (and reread) every book Louis L'Amour wrote. Some of my girlfriends would look at me and ask WHY I was reading a western. I tried to explain to them that when L'Amour described something, you could feel it, hear it, taste it, smell it, touch it. I've never been to the Grand Tetons, but can certainly describe them to anyone because of Louis L'Amour. I believe he was one of the most magnificent authors this country has ever had!

Okay, I have a question but I cannot register because I don't have an email address that is not hotmail. So I will ask it here. About a month ago I finally bought and read my last Louis L'mour book. I have been collecting and reading them since I was about 8 (I think....who knows for sure). I've re-read many a number of times. Now I am ready for some new books. I am really interested in the time period of Sackett's land and The Walking Drum....around the 1600's to 1700's. Does anybody know of a few good books written in the L'Amour style that is based in that time period? Thanks

Hello All, My father is a fan of the old westerns. Although he doesn't read english. He has read a few of Lous Lamour's books translated into portuguese,and has enjoyed them very much. He gets lost in his own world when reading them. I would love to find more translated in portuguese. If any of you wonderful Louis Lamour fans can help me I would appreciate it very much. Thank You!!

We were on a vacation, and came across a place that Louis L'Amour had actually stayed at. He was there to research the area, for one of his many books. We cannot even remember what state we were in,it's been so long ago. I enjoy Mr.L'Amours work very much, and have read the books many times. My wife has been buying them for me, for the past 18 years. She enjoys the calendar's very much,and keeps them in the wraper. She uses the appointment book all the time.

I just finished reading "A Man Called Noon". Just the latest of a long string of L.L. books I have collected in the 20 or so years I have read L.L. books. I searched for about 15 years for Smoke From This Alter, even wrote to Bantam Publishing a long time ago, and they could not put me in touch with it. Last year my daughter gave me a copy for Christmas. Well worth the wait. As it is with every L.L. book I have read. I always tell my wife after I read one of his novels, I was born in the wrong place and time. I feel so much at home while reading anything written by Louis L'Lamour. I wish to thank the family for keeping up with his work. It takes us modern day folks back in time for a little piece of adventure that Louis had lived himself. Thank You.

Louis Dearborn L'Amour is my favorite Writer since age 7. Because of his storytelling prowess, myself and many people I know has raved about his books, his bio. He has made me proud to be an American and his fan. Upto now I have some of his books and will pass them on to my kids, who have just discovered "HIM". I think he is an exceptional person as reflected in his characters and I feel I have met him, even though not in actuality. His works have that kind of effect on many. Bless HIM.

I have been reading Louis L'Amour novels for years. My father had a large collection and he enjoyed them immensly. I now teach high school English and have all my freshmen students read a Louis L'Amour novel since we are only 30 miles from Jamestown, North Dakota. A place he once lived during his childhood. Some of these students are already Louis L'Amour readers or have parents or grandparents that are. Some of these students will begin a journey of reading enjoyment sparked by L'Amour's novels. His storytelling is timeless.

b>My first L'Amour book was "The Tall Stranger" which i stole from my dads lunch box (he got it back later), this was in about 1970 when i was in high school. I have since obtained all of the books (i think). My copy of Kilkenny has an orginal price of just 35 cents, many of my books were purchased for 75 cents or $1.25. I still love reading them even though some are "dog eared" and tattered. Thank you so much for the continuing efforts on his behalf.

I remember reading my first (Louie paperback) in 1971 while I was a freshman in high school. I think the book was, (Lando) sacket. I have been hooked on his books ever since. Of course I have my favorites, like everyone else does, but I'm sure I have gotten more enjoyment from the Sacket series then all of his other books...... Well that might not be altogther true either... Honestly, I've never read a bad (Louie). May he rest in peace, and i know I will probably never enjoy another person's books like I have enjoyed reading my LOUIE"S Thank You..L.L.

My dad was extremely sick and in the hospital this past Spring. The only thing that would calm and soothe him was Louis L'Amour books on CD. We played them 6 to 8 hours a day. Just when we thought he had fallen asleep and we turned off the CD player, Dad would say, "Turn Louis L'Amour back on." He got well and came home, but I really don't know what we would have done without those books. Dad had read most all his books before, and hearing them again was a great comfort. Now my son, who is 12 is beginning to read and enjoy them thanks to hearing them on CD. Louis L'Amour still continues to thrill all ages of people.

Our children our deslexic and have had trouble in geting interested in reading. These books have helped very much in there reading skills.

my father was a big fan of louis he gave me my louis L`amour book. i was maybe 13 yrs old then cause i loved to read back then an now i`m 45. i have had some of louis`sbooks longer than 10-15 yrs i have a lot of them others i have collected over the yrs. i keep them an read them over again at a later date. an alaways it`s like reading them for the first time.
In January 2006 the Poetry Society of Oklahoma is honoring Louis as "Oklahoma Poet of the Meeting". Louis was a member of the Poetry Society of Oklahoma(PSO) in the early 1930s. His poetry was wonderful! I have a first printing of the 1936 Poetry Society of Oklahoma State Anthology. It contains two of his first poems. The President (and founder) of PSO then was Zoe A. Tilghman, wife of Marshall "Bill" Tilghman. Just wanted Beau, Angelique, and Louis' friends to know that Louis is still loved and remembered in Oklahoma.

It's my regret that I never got back to Louis when I recieved a letter from him several years before he passed away. I have spend meny years studing his novels of the Sacketts. I was had always plan to have a discussion with him about his research for his Sackett books. Because, my people come from the high hill of Tennessee. Specifically the Sequatchie Valley. You see momma was a Swafford. The Swafford's came to Bledsoe County in about 1810 from South Carolina. Cousin Tommy Swaford ahs written a book entitled: SWAFFORD-TOLLETT FEUD published in March of 2003. This feud started sometime during the Civil War and continued until sometime in the 1920's, there were many men killed during the feud. The ironic part is that the two familes were inter married. I have also noted that throughout Louis books he has used my other family surnames; Larkin and Logan; my first ggg-grandmother was Sarah Larkin and my second ggg-grandmother was Isabella Logan. My gg-grandmother on my fathers side was Nancy James, Jesses James fathers sister [Jesses aunt]. My mothers - mother, my grandmother was Agness Anna May Ford. My uncle was John Cole, Jesses mothers maiden name was Zeredla Cole, and her mothers maiden name was Ford. Now you may understand why I regret that I put off getting back to him. It was my great loss. Forever his fan. Jimmie Lee Robins, US Army [retired]

I have over 2 thousand books in my collection, but the Louis L'Amours are the most treasured. I believe Louis said that he wants to be remembered as a good story teller, actually he is a brilliant story teller. He left a massive legacy in his writings and stories.

I started reading Mr. L'Amour's books about 5 years ago. My husband gave me one "Reilly's Luck" and I've been hooked ever since. His grandad got him reading the books when he was just a teenager. We love everything he's ever done and can't wait to add to our collection.

I have been reading LL's boks every since i was in the Ua Navy in the 80's. I can't get enough of his books to read i read them over and over. My father and i have many times sat around and reminsed over the books we had read and discussed them throughly. I also like to find as many of his novels that have been made into movies. I am now a truck driver and I enjoy getting his books on tapes from and listen to them as I drive down the road. I have not read all of his works but I will as I find them.

I'm in the 7th grade and I love Louis L'Amour books. Thats all I read last year in school. He captured my attention and kept it and writes awesome novels. My first was 'Where the Long Grass Blows' and I've been hooked since then. His style kept me page-turning and I love how everything was nitty-gritty and down right hardcore. It shows how life was for people back then and it made me want to live back then.

I have been reading LL books for almost 40 yrs,ever since i picked up one of his books, i could not put it down.He brings a world of long ago to life. You read his stories and you become part of that story. I have read everything he has ever written and still to this day at the age of 51 i still read those great stories over and over again. When my son John was born i read story after story to him every night, and now John is also a devoted LL reader. Guess we both know how great LL was. It was with great sadness and grief when i heard LL had passed away. Myself and my family grieved for the lost we and millions of other readers felt at his passing. The world lost a great story teller which no other could ever hope to replace. He was truely the greatest writer of all time. I want to thank the Lamour family for keeping this great man's Legacy going and giving us what we , as devoted fans, need, his stories.I never had the opportunity to meet LL but somehow i think he was more like the works he created, a true Hero. Thank you LL.

I've been reading LL's books now for nearly 37 years and they are still as exsiting as the first time I read them. I've read most of His books twice and many of my favorites 5 or more times. What makes them good for me is the way he can bring alive the country he is writing about, when he writes about the desert I get thirsty or if he is writing about a blizzard I need to put a coat on. His Books were a great role model for me during a time of turmoil and confusion for many during the 60s and 70s, his characters were honorable,and good people trying to do what was right in the face of incredible obsticles, true hero's they were. One thing that I have always regreted was a missed opertunity to meet Louis Lamour in the mid to late 70's at a book store my sister worked at in Springfield OR that would have been great moment. Well this is a great web site glad I found it

My brother introduced me to Louis L'Amour's books in 1970. I had always been an avid reader of westerns, and found in these books an authenticity surpassing that of any other westerns I had read. More even than his settings, the mindset that he describes as belonging to people of the Old West resonated - I've seen much that same mindset in the best people I've known. Mr. L'Amour, in describing western attitudes, quantified an outlook that I believe is uniquely American - a combination of the ruggedness of attitude found on any frontier, and the moral vigor that is unique to those who are part of the only nation in history where the PEOPLE are sovereign. He was the voice of true Americans, native or naturalized, of all generations.

No other author in the world ever captured his way of bringing the american frontier to your doorstep. I have enjoyed hours upon hours of advanture and excitement from everyone of his novels.He brought me the world I always wanted to be in. Truely a "Master" at his craft.

I first began reading Louis L'Amour when my neighbor gave me one of his books to read and I was hooked. When Bantam Books came out with his books monthly, my wife signed me up! I have every one that they put out and have kept them for years, reading them over and over. They fill one complete 7' tall bookself and part of another. I have hopes that my son or his son will one day pick up their first one and discover, what everyone who has read his work has discovered, that this man can write one hell of a book! I was also fortunate enough to have actually met LL at an authors symposium years ago in San Francisco. His book "The Lonesome Gods" had just come out and he was featured along with Wilt Chamberlin and Richard Simons. I was stationed out there at Moffet Field at the time and took my son with me. We met at the corner on the way to the book signing and he was very gracious and answered my questions and later signed three of my books that I had brought with me. They are some of my most treasured possessions. I continue to read his works and hope that I have gotten all of them for my collection. Thank you to the L'Amour family for continuing to put his work out for the public, because we truly do love his words.

I started reading Louis L'Amour back in the 70's. The first book I ever read was the "First Fast Draw" it was great and I've collected all the books over the years. Of course I've read them and reread them many times. After reading Louis L'Amour I could never read another boring, dry Zane Grey book.

I've been reading Louis L'amour novels since the past 10 years. I've always been fascinated by the old west. I picked up this craze from my grandpa who used to read these novels. Louis L'amour is an awesome storyteller and I've always looked at life in a different way and have learnt many lessons after reading his novels. Hats off to the greatest novelist of frontier tales !!

Just want to say that I read ALL of Louis La'mours books,most many times, some many many times, and most of the old short stories I could find that were published in the old Ranch Romance type magazines, I ordered all I could find for mom, we had them all at one time,Since Mom passed away, I haven't kept up anymore was just tooo sad, but I saw your link on Charlie Daniels page and had to come here. Think I will start my collection all over again, someone took moms after she died... He was the best writer of all time in my humble estimation, as well as my boyhood hero, there will never be another Louis L'Amour... Stan Williams

I have yet to read one of his books and NOT be magically transported to the Old West. He was a very vivid writer. He is missed and I wish I could have met him and talked with him. Thank You!

I am no 55 years old and have been reading and rereading Louis L'Amour novels for over 30 years. What I think makes his writing so special is that he makes the reader feels like he is part of the past and is actually a part of the story. I don't think there will ever be anyone who can write about the West with this special style. I never was priveleged enough to meet him but every time I pick up one of his book I really miss him. Think you for keeping his memory alive.

I have been reading the western books by Louis since I was in 7th grade. It was a very small school and we didn't have that many so I got to read them over and over. I fell in love with Louis' style of writing from the first one I read. My highschool English teacher got to hear Louis give a speech at her College graduation. Man would I have loved to be there or at least be able to meet with Louis just to say how big of a fan that I am.

I have recently returned from a holiday in Zimbabwe and was in the Lake Kariba area looking for a few carvings to bring home. We came upon a carver that had the most fantastic Girafee, standing about 6'. I brought out some English pounds to do the purchase but he spotted a LL paperback on the rear window ledge of the hired car we had. Without any hesitation, he indicated that he would swop the Giraffe for the book. Whether he could read I never quite found out as his spoken english was shaky, but he was very positive that it had to be the LL book, not any thing else. Mr LL, even in the remote parts of the Zambezi Valley, your work is treasured. The carver, the Giraffe, myself and my family thank you for allowing us to all share in your wonderful gift of writing a fantastic story. May millions more discover your work. Thank you.

Hi Louis Lamour guestbook, My Grandmother has just turned 93 years old and just lost her husband of 67years not to long ago. Her one real enjoyment in life was always reading westerens mostly (zane grey and Louis lamour) these where her favorites. It hurts me so much because her eye sight is going and she cannot read anymore. Please allow me to order some of your tape cassets so she can once again alow herself to get caught up in a good story which also would bring back good memories for her. Let me know by email the best possible way to get these tapes for her, because she is moving into anew nursing home and is feeling a little afraid and I know that these stories would allow her spirits to pick up.

I am just sorry that there are not any men of the caliber that he wrote about anymore. When trials and troubles get to be a little too much, I just pick up a book and settle in for my "get away". When I finish reading one now, I put the date on the inside flyleaf. Thanks for continueing with his work!

I started to read LL's book just 3 days ago (the 6th of Oct.). I started to enjoy reading at the age of 14, it inspired me and has and will be a guidence through my life, although I am still very young I can't wait to share the books I have read with my kids, and so on. I just started collecting LL books. His books of action, suspence, heartbreak, fear, have spoken to me. All books I read I find are a chance to learn, to see the power one must go through to succeed. The very first book of LL was 'Flint'. I think it is the greatest book I have ever read. Thank you for the great chance to learn Louis!

I was introduced to Louis L'Amour's books in 1974 by my grandfather. He is the only writer whose books I've reread up to ten times. I still have some of the original books I started collecting many years ago. Today I have about 115 of his books in my collection which has a special place in the lounge. I visit the local book store regularly to check if any new publications were added to their stock. Whenever I have an urge to read something special I visit my collection. I have often read way past midnight to finish a book I started late the previous evening. I hope that you will find more "missing" stories that will be publisised. I would have liked to meet Louis L'Amour to thank him for the many pleasant hours I spent reading his books. He was the one person who brought the Old West to life and one of my dreams is to be able to visit this region one day.

I started reading LL's books in 1972 at the age of 12. My Grandfather gave me my first one and I have never stopped reading LL since. My clooection contains all his books in paperback and am getting close to completing the leatherette set. What is most important to me is how I can see LL's vision of what a man should be reflected in my life. Integrity and honesty have served me well giving me moderate success but most importantly the ability to look inward and like what I see. Thanks LL, and thanks to the L'Amour family for keeping his tradition alive.

I have been a Louis L'Amour fan since a friend loaned me a book in 1977 while serving in the US Navy. I have read everything ever published by Louis. The best part is I still enjoy his books today. I do a large amount of job related travel. You will not find me eatting alone in a restaurant while traveling or sitting alone on an airplane because my good friend Louis L'Amour is always there to keep me company. When during my travels I find myself near an area written about in one of his books, I take the time to visit that area. I find the next time a read a novel by Louis concerning that area, it means that much more. I own at least one copy of every book he ever published. Louis is the greastest story teller that ever lived. His legacy will live forever.

I started reading L. Lamour books since the young age of fifteen years old. Since then I have read everyone of his western novels. Although I have read other Western novels from other writers I could never find anything remotely close to his books.

I have been an avid fan of Mr. L'amour for many years, and as I get older, the deeper I get. I have decided that eventually I will own every book ever written by Mr. L'amour. My favorite is Bendigo Shafter and all of the Sackett books. I am a history buff and his books seem to come alive with historical detail. Absolutely the best American writer of all time!

Have searched many years for other great western authors but find myself always coming back to Louis L'Amour. My enjoyment of his westerns is continuously getting better as the years go by.....lol....well you can say my memory is slipping so by the time I read all his books I can start over again. His westerns grab you and throw you into the story....Louis has given me the needed escape in my life. 0:)

I began reading Louis L'Amour's stories as a young teenager and have read just about every one; some several times. His stories have had a significant impact on my life; probably more than I realize. Louis L'Amour was able to weave his philosophy on education and values into his stories and as a result my character was to some degree developed by his writings. I am an active duty Army officer; currently a company commander deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. I have a B.S. degree in Political Science, a Masters in Geology and am considering staying in Alaska (my duty station) upon my return to pursue a degree in Natural Resource Management. I love exploring the wilderness at my door in Alaska and would like to work in a field that protects and manages this great treasure. I just wanted to express my thanks now that I am old enough to appreciate the things that had a significant impact on my development. Sincerely, CPT Jonathan Zeppa

I don't even know where to start in saying how much his books have meant to me. A good old friend introduced me to Louis L'Amour books when I was about 12 years old and unknowingly at the time, they helped reinforce values while taking my mind on an adventure that no movie or television show could do. My favorite book....probably Last of the Breed. Thanks,Louis L'Amour

I remember reading Louis L'Amour westerns when I was a patient in the Fresno Veterans Hospital where I spent 6 months following back surgery, and the stories were the only thing that kept me from going crazy. As a young cowboy growing up on 2 of the largest ranchs in the USA (Flying H Ranch in New Mexico and Hassell Cattle Company in Earth Texas) being "Cooped" up in a hospital was very hard. I missed the great outdoors and the scent of livestock but I could almost "Smell" the animals when reading your stories. Thanks Mr L'Amour.

I bought Monument Rock and Bowdrie in a used book store a few months ago and WHAM! I was hooked. Have been scouring used book stores and yard sales ever since to find every book Mr. L'Amour has ever written. My favorites are the Westerns. The best of everything all wrapped up in each book: adventure, suspense, romance, characters with integrity, historical accuracy, and a writing style both simple and profound. Thank you, Mr. L'Amour, in advance of many pleasurable reading hours to come!

OH HOW I LOVE LOUIS L'AMOUR BOOKS!!!!! My husband was reading L'AMOUR books when we starting going together,that was 23 years ago.Now every night I must have one of Louis L'Amour's books to read before I go to sleep.Sometimes I have a problem putting the book down and closing my eyes and when my husband wakes up and I'm still reading he just laughs and says "I warned you they were hard to put down" I have all but about 30 of his books in my collection. I enjoy searching for the rest.The hardest for me to find is Louis's Poetry book,Smoke from this Alter.I will find them all someday. Thats half the fun of getting started,you feel like your on a western treasure hunt... Thanks for the hard work Mr.L'Amour and to his wife Kathy and children Beau and Angelique for caring enough about his readers to continue giving us the pleasure of reading his words.God Bless to all from Christine & Terry Arnhold,Mt Hood Ore.

I have been reading Louis L'Amours books for 25 years. At one point I had just about every novel he had written. Over the years I've lost many of his books, only to buy them again. I once read where an author said that the greatest satisfaction he got from his writing was to see one of his books looking worn, a bit frayed and well read. I can honestly say that every book of Louis L'Amours I own is exactly that. Thanks for the education!

I got hooked on Louis L'Amour books over 35 years ago when I was just a youngster. Later, as a young man in the Navy with little to do at sea, I would get lost in his stories every chance I got. I didn't realize it at the time, but his books had a lot to do with the kind of values and beliefs that became a part of me later as an adult and a career law enforcement officer. Thanks Louis...

Read my first Louis LAmour novel 30 years ago when I was 16. I borrowed it from a classmate at school. I now almost have the full collection - the later editions are however not readily available in South Africa. Guess I will have to order on-line. My family are also avid readers - my daugther recently gave me a copy of "May there be a Road" for Fathersday -what a great way to say: "Dad I love you!" Keep up the good work- this is a most impressive website. Regards, Dawie Willemse, South Africa

My husband's uncle, Mutt Foutz and wife, Fern, were next door neighbors to Louis LAmour in Mancos, CO. Our prized book is "Passin' Through" because the book was dedicated to Mutt and Fern. My father-in-law started me and my husband, Charles, reading these great stories. Louis LAmour was truly a genius with words and we are so greatful to have had him on the earth.

I think Louis L'Amour is one of the most romantic authors I have ever read. He can say so much with a single sentence. One example, and I can't remember the book or can I quote it exactly, but the character said "I miss the way a woman walks when she knows a man is watching her". That's romantic!

As some of the others my Dad introduced me to Louis Lamour books. I am on my 3rd time reading through my collection. I am still looking for about 15 books I do not have. His writing has spoiled me for other western writers. I get a lot of enjoyment in reading his books. At times I think I was born in the wrong century. Still looking for my missing books.

I've read L'AMour books since from high school (graduated in '68) thru my 20 years in the service ('70-'90) and still read and re-read now. One of my greatest treasures is an autographed book when Louis was in Washington D.C. and he had a book signing at the Pentagon where I was serving in the OJCS. Please keep printing his books. They are inspiring as they show what a man can do if he just keeps coming on despite trouble. -Mike

Have been reading and rereading since I first found Hondo back in 61 or so. Everytime I found a new one it was like I struck gold. My family knew what I wanted every birthday and Christmas - what was the newest Lamour book? My children, even most of the girls, read the sackett novels, or whatever I left laying around. My daughter who went to Iraq (and came home too) said they helped kep her sane over there. I truly appreciate the amount of research done to keep history true in the novels. Thanks, Lois, you were a great storyteller.

Even though I've been living outside the U.S. for the past few years I'll never cease being grateful to Louis L'amour for his books. I have pretty much read them all over and over again many times over many, many years. They are not only entertaining, they provide one with an education that is hard to come by these days. Such is this education, that it pretty much saved my life back in my army days. One of our sergents got us lost out in the Mojave one night. Thanks to the education I got from Louis' books I was able to find water in the desert and lead us back to camp!

I received my first Louis L'Amour western in junior high as a bonus for doing some work for my math teacher. That bonus was of far more value than the pay. I read "Under the Sweetwater Rim", "Down the Long Hills", and "Brionne" in the first batch...she also gave me a couple of books from some other western writer named Max Brand. That was back in the mid 1970's. I have quite a few of Mr. L'Amour's books in leather and plan to have my children read them also. In fact, my son's middle name came from one of my favorite characters, Ryan Tyler. (I didn't think my wife would go for Flint.) These westerns have been my friend over many miles of flight, riding and relaxing. Thank you for having this site and I hope to see Mr. L'Amour in person in Heaven some day.

My father passed away recently and left me a load of books. Over thirty of these are by Louis L'amour and they are by far the best stories I have read for a very long time. I worked in Colorado Springs for a while and have fallen in love with the area and Louis' books bring all the memories of that type of country back wonderfully. Louis seems to me to be a man's man, modest and not at all like many pompous self opinionated writers of today. In the UK it is hard to get many of his books, do you know how I can finish off my collection of his books? I have about twenty or so to collect. All the best. Charlie.

I grew up in Labrador and I have always been delighted to hear Mr. L'Amour menion this rocky land discovered by the Vikings long before Columbus sailed to the america's! Most people have no idea where Labrador is but Mr. L'Amour knew it well. It is still today one of the last truely wild frontiers and I wonder if Louis L'Amour ever travelled there - does anyone know by chance?

No one writes great western novels as L'Amour does. Every book I read is so suspensful and descriptive that I just can't put it down! These stories makes me want to live in that same time period; especially so I could marry a true cowboy, who you don't see many of these days! I have never read so much as a few books till I picked up one of your novels; now I wish to read the entire series! Your books have enchanted me with your amazing characters, settings, and historical knowledge of what took place during the time period and I have trully enjoyed reading them! Thanks again!

My Daddy was an avid Louis L'Amour fan. He read all his books. When he couldn't find a new one to read he read the old ones again. I had read a few Louis L'Amour books but after I lost my Daddy in 1996 I began to read all of them. I was always a fan of his stories that were made into movies. I began collecting the leather bound, autographed series & now can hardly wait each month until a new one arrives. I am so glad his family has continued to publish the books. Keep up the good work.

Louis L'Amour was responsible for my getting good grades in history,he gave me the thirst for knoweledge of history..My first Louis L'Amour book was comstock lode many many years ago,since then i have read and reread most if not all of his books. to say which was my favorite is a very hard choice,i think the one that stands out best was the haunted mesa.because when my son and daughter were toddlers they always wanted me to read to them. one nite instead of choosing their childrens books they chose the the book that i was reading,i was half finished with it, so it was hard to go back to the beginning, it scared them, but they loved it,and each nite i would read them a chapter,it seemed like it took for ever to finish that book,thankfully i had others that i could read.( i usually read the shorter paper backs 1 per nite.)Now that my children are about to have children of their own, i have asked both of them about taking over my collection,the world has changed and they with it.both are avid readers but their intrests lie elsewhere,i was thinking of selling the collection,to some one that loves louis L'Amour books as much as i .. i have maybe 180-200 of his books some are duplicates,all have been read and reread many times...I have read many many authors, and have about 40 boxes of books by other authors left that i still have to trim down.

As a child of seven, I'd read every one of Louis L'Amour's vast number of books. I wrote to him, telling him I intended to be a writer, and he was kind enough to take time to write back and encourage me. I recently published my western novel, Crossroads, and although it's too late to thank Mr. L'Amour for his generous encouragement three decades ago, I'm glad I found your site so I could post this note of posthumous appreciation.

My grandfather's was a big L'Amour fan, and growing up, we always kept an eye out at garage sales for any books that he might not have. After his passing, I inherited his L'Amour collection, and until then never read any kind of western story and never thought I'd be into it. Since they were my grandfather's favorite, I decided to give one a try, and now I can't put them down. I've read thirty or more so far, one right after the other. I have several other new books by other authors waiting to be read, but they are on hold...at least until I finish the Sackett series! I'm hooked!

I used to read my dad's Louis L'Amour books when I was a teenager and into my 20's. Unlike so many Western riders, Louis L'Amour's books can appeal to men and women. My favorites were Reilly's Luck and Bendigo Shafter (can't remember if that was the name of the book or the main character). I always thought those two books would make great mini-series and wish someone would write a screen play.

I have been reading Louis L'Amour books since the early 1970s when I bought one at a local book store. I have read my way through the collection 5 times. His values were much the same as taught by my father, which both had a large impact on the way I grew up. I can never express my gratitude or respect in a manner that is fitting for what he did for my life in any other way except to say 'thanks'.

A man of a few experiences, I read Louis L'Amour's story THE WALKING DRUM, and knew that I would never find another author who stirs, touches, and reaches inside of me to help me find myself. Time and again his literary genious has opened my eyes to see something there I'd not seen before. Whatever Louis had desired to become; a troubadour, storyteller, author, he has done so with his readers in mind and with knowelege to share. His work is acedemic to people who've missed some things within their lives' teachings. Louis' insight and retrospect deserve a tribute and his family, this website and the evident desire to fulfill Louis's last wishes salute him with reverence. "Glorious, glorious".......

Hey I'm Justin, I have read most of but not all of Louis's books. I have a great love for the man, his books reach out and touch my soul, maybe it's because I feel like I was born 150-250 years too late. His writing makes me feel at home because the outdoors, travels, and wildlife are my church. I only wish I could have met him and told him "thank you, for lighting a fire inside me,and for your stories that were there like a close friend when I needed one".

I just found this sight, I have been reading Louis's novels since around 10 years of age, I am thankful for them. There guidance and companionship through the tough times and the good times are priceless. I want to thank him, I also want to thank all his inspirations. I am 26 years old now, I own every book, I now am collecting all the new hardcovers that are out(for keepsakes). I only have one problem, I have a hard time getting into other author, there style and what they teach me/or don't teach me does not compare. They seem to be all action no thought. I feel like I know apart of Louis and thank him very much. Monty

I have been reading Louis L'Amour books for about 25 years. I have enjoyed everyone, you can tell by their condition they have been read a number of times. But they are as good the tenth time as they were the first. I hope when my children inherit them they will enjoy them as much as I have.

I started reading Mr. L'Amour's books in 1978-79 while stationed in Germany. When I was transfered back to the states to Ft. Carson, CO. our pathes crossed I was hitch hiking back to the post when he stopped and gave me a ride. We had a very good talk during that drive and will never forget it. As for his writings I have been collectinead. In time I too as well as most of his fans will be with him riding that trail in the sky.

In the early 1970' I was serving overseas as a medic and feeling a bit homesick. A friend lent me hondo which initially I set aside because I didnt read "westerns". Eventually I picked it up and was hooked. since then I have read and reread all of Mr. Lamours books.

I am getting on up in age and my eyes are not the best anymore. About a year ago, my wife gave me one of your audio books. I just loved it. I grew up in the 'western age of Hollywood' with Roy, Gene and later John Wayne etc. But your books add to the western mystick with a touch of mystery. Since the first one i have bought as many of CDs as i can find. I am hooked. They are really a friend on highway trips when 98% of radio is trash. Thanks. I look forward to more the CD dramatizations. And i have just found your web site. Can't wait to see what you have that B & N doesn't have.

So many of our patrons at our little library adore all the books by Louis L'Amour and these are also the first they reach for when they become ill or incapacitated. That is a real compliment when you see the young middle aged and old still enjoying the same books time after time and generation after generation

became a part of the L'Amour tribe in 1979, a trip to town from out on the station was a highlight as I was able to go and buy the latest novel. Louis set high standards for his characters, an excellent example for a young bloke!! All my boks are now very tired and dog-eared, they each get re-read once a year, I hope my sons see the value as well. Louis has been an inspiration, thank you!!!

I've been an advid Louis L'Amour fan for years. The first time I read one of his books I was 12 yrs old. I was amazed at how life like the story was so much I felt like I was there with the person in the story. I am now 41 yrs old and continue to re-read all his stories. I have just about all his paperback novels and will continue to look for the ones I am missing. Louis's stories have been an insperation to me and has let me see the world through his stories. I am grateful that I have found an author that has driven me to read his books more than a few times over. Thank you Louis for the great stories you have created. We'll miss you very much.

Do to physical problems n my youth . could not go out and interact with people, so his novels and philosiphes helped shape my outlook and how I intereacted with other people later. I give deep thanks to his memory and to his family who are continueing to publish his works and look foreward to seeing more of his and his families. Thank you

The writing style is unique and captivating, I find it difficult to put a book down even if I have read it 5 or 6 time already. A great web site, keep up the good work in keeping the tradition alive!

While traveling as a representative of my college, in the summer of 1972, a box of books was donated to our crew. Among them were several by Louis L'Amour, and thus began my love affair with the Sacketts and the stories of Louis L'Amour. I have read each of the stories and books numerous times and find the same pleasure I originally experienced, with each new reading! I am just sorry there are no more new stories to be enjoyed, but I am grateful for the productivity that allows me to return to my old favorites again and again.

It was all my Dad's fault. I found a couple of Louis Lamour books in his closet when I was about 10 or 11( I am now almost 16) and have been hooked ever since. My first book was Conagher and I have alot of favorites. I have read the ones I have at least 3 times each. I hope to own them all some day and give them to my kids so they can become attached to them also. Reading these books as put new definitions to the word courage, loyalty, honesty, and integrity for me. I know that most the characters weren't real people but I still feel so attached to them that I get really excited when I come upon a new short story about them. These books are the best ever and have meant alot to me. Keep up the good work!!!!

The majority of the collection, is first edition books going back to the early 50's. I had started reading all of the books in sequence for the second time when I decided that the collection should be kept in tact. I gave my entire collection to my son Chris, who I hope will read all of the books and then when my grandson Brian comes of age that the collection will continue in our family. I am anxiously awaiting the completion of the Biography project.

As far back as I can remember, my Dad was a HUGE Louis L'Amour fan. In 1981, as a pre-teen, I read my first LL book, THE MAN CALLED NOON. The thing that grabbed me was the "visualization" in his writing. I could "see" what was happening in each story as if I was actually along for the ride. After THE MAN CALLED NOON, I was hooked in a big way! Throughout my teenage years I read every L'Amour book available with the exception of maybe two or three. Thank you Dad for getting me started! His books have been a friend to me during some lonely times. I'm sorry that he's no longer with us to write new untold adventures, but he's left us some great trails to explore again and again for years to come! Simply put...he's the greatest fictional author of all time! (And I don't say that lightly.) From the content of this Guestbook, there are a few others who share my opinion!

I started reading (Louie's), thats what I been calling them for almost 20 years now, in grade school. I would place those paper backs between the pages of my text books, and just read away. I must have looked like I was studying hard. As luck would have it I made it though college and into the world. I have a son on the way and I wonder how these stories may influence his development. These days, I read, hike, and shoot often and still carry a Louie close by. Have a great day!

I started reading Louis L'Amour in about third grade. Soon after I began collecting his books when I could get my hands on them. Now twenty years later I am finally on my last book. I would only buy a book I needed if I came across it (no ordering online, going to huge bookstores, or buying more than one at a time). That way it made it more special to finally find a book I had been waiting for. It feels great to look at my bookcase and see every one of L.L.'s books sitting there. Of course my favorite has to be The Walking Drum....just wish there was the follow up on its way. Thanks

Hi pardner, I started reading Louis L'Amour's books since the age of 15 when a friend introduced me to it.I'm now 37 and still read them whenever I can lay my hand on them (or if the kids allow me to).I have probably re-read some of the books about 6 times already, but I still enjoy them and will probably read them again.Mr. L'Amour's style is unique (I've tried other western writers, but just does'nt appeal to me in the same way as LL).And that friend that introduced me to Louis L'Amour 22 yrs ago, well I see him from time to time, and we still trade copies.Thouroughly enjoyable.

I found Louis L'Amour's books in a little library in Central California in 1980. I read all they had and then joined a book club so I could own them. Besides reading them over and over again, I also have learned to keep track of the books I read each year, just like Louis did. How surprised I was to learn I read close to 200 books a year! He set a good example for readers like me.

From the first Louis L'Amour book I read, it opened the path to discovering oneself and finding the truth within. "The Walking Drum" is one book that one should read to understand the depth of the authors love for history and the detail he adds to make you feel as if you are living within the story.

I was 14 when I first picked up a Louis book; I think it was a Chick Bowdrie collection. Since then, it's been 23 years of ongoing enjoyment! The beauty about LL books is their unending "readoverability!" My wife finds it humorous that I can read the same LL books over and over, knowing how they'll end; I think it's just that I find his stories comfortable company...

To read a Louis L'Amour creation is to go back in time and forget the troubles of today, fighting with the heroes of yesterday and vanquishing villians with ease. Oh to go back to a simpler time as those. I love losing myself and thinking of where I live as it was 100 years ago. Thanks a bunch, Mr. L'Amour. You'll never be forgotten.

Howdy! I do a lot of mining for mineral specimens and hiking from the Sierras to the Rockies. I've read all of Mr. L'Amour's westerns at least once, and I enjoy with great pleasure his vivid and accurate descriptions of many of the places that I have ventured and know well. It's fun to share in the experience of an author who has actually traveled the road of his characters. Wish there were still more booksyou are right there in the plot with the characters. In my life time, I have been to many of the places he wrote about.

I have read about 2/3 of the books Louis wrote, so far. It is very hard to put one down after starting, and my life would be much more difficult if I didn't have such an understanding wife. She knows I am addicted to his writings. I just wish some of the characters would show up in other books, such as the one I just completed, Kearney McRaven. So much to build on in the initial book The Proving Trail. So many questions, such as what did he do about the map on buckskin that he sewed into his jacket? Did he ever go back to see his friend the chef and the lady who worked with him? Did he follow up with the young homesteader and his wife who were hospitable on his journey? Who was the lady (woman) who was calling to him on the mountain just before the three bad guys appeared and the shoot-out in which he was joined by Pistol? These, and many more, questions. Terrific writing, but I just get very involved personally with the characters.

I have the complete colection of L.M. hard bound books from Bantam books. These are the hard brown gold lettered hard bound books. I would not givr them up to anyone except my daughter who has asked for them if and when I move ontothr other world. I have read most of the books al least 3 times and others more than 3. Louis L'Amour was the best. B.B.B. Bruce Brenner <email@example.com>

I've been reading your books for almost thirty years now. I was so influenced by them I went to work on a Cow Ranch after High School for a few years. I've loved the "ride" these books have taken me on and now look forward to sharing them with my son. Thank you, you'll never know.

My wife is the one who first introduced me to Louis L'Amour's books. She read the Sacket series, then she gave them to me to read and I have been hooked ever since. I have most of his books in paperback but I would like to change over to hardback.
